'''Yori:''' Sorry, [[CombatPragmatist [[KnowWhenToFoldEm too busy rescuing you]].



* '''Cho Teko''', a blind Taoist priest. Comes off as a CloudCuckooLander due to endlessly spouting [[IceCreamKoan Ice Cream Koans]]. An absolute master of kung fu despite both his blindness and general obliviousness. Has several running gags, including one about misreading the gender of any new character who he meets, and another about how the world will end after a blind Taoist, a Hindu, and a cleric walk into a bar together.
* '''Kenta Daisuke''' or Ken, the guy with the huge sword. Enjoys sake, Kabuki plays, and beating people up for money, or just for laughs. TheBigGuy who's motivated by revenge for his clan, which used to be a rival to the Wataro clan but got massacred by Yori's father when Ken was a child.

Of the above, only Ina can't hold her own in combat, although she's proved herself to be an excellent strategist. Which is a good thing for the group, because they need all the help they can get as they try to prevent a war and survive clashing with a squad of powerful assassins. Not to mention the ninja mercenaries, kung fu priests, genocidal warlords, gun toting armies, a prophecy about the end of the world, and worst of all, dynastic politics.

* ManipulativeBastard: Not only did Hirotomo plan to have Masuhiro assassinated right after Yori and Ina's marriage so Yori would inherit control of the Senshin clan, but there are subtle hints that [[spoiler:he wants Yori to defeat the Demons of Sorrow, presumably to toughen Yori up and turn him into a more suitable heir.

A webcomic set in feudal Japan that starts out with an ArrangedMarriage, moves to RebelliousPrincess and RescueRomance, then CharacterMagneticTeam. By the time they've gotten to the major showdowns, the team consists of:

'''Yorikiro Wataro''' ('''Yori'''), our Hero, son of the most hated man in Japan. A bit of a [[TheDitz ditz]] sometimes, but his [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass heart is in the right place]].

'''Ina Senshin''', our Heroine, a strong-willed and loud-mouthed girl. When she gets her way, it's often because she bullied her teammates into obeying her.

'''Cho Teko''', a blind Taoist priest. Comes off as a CloudCuckooLander by spouting [[IceCreamKoan Ice Cream Koans]]. Has a bit of a running gag about misreading the gender of any new character who comes near the team.

'''Kenta Daisuke''' or Ken, the guy with the huge sword. Enjoys sake and Kabuki plays. TheBigGuy who's motivated by revenge for his clan, which got massacred by people apparently working for Yori's father.

Of the above, only Ina can't hold her own in combat, although lately she's proved to be an amazing strategist. But while Cho and Kenta are competent whenever they fight, Yori's plans often get derailed through his own idiocy or forgetfulness (as in "Oh, I totally forgot that I ''broke my sword'' last fight"), though he has recently taken out the second member of the QuirkyMinibossSquad.

Turns out the young man is the same guy that she was supposed to marry, and he too has fled his clan, albeit for slightly different reasons.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: General Tanaka is on the side of the Senshin clan, and his army come sin handy, but Tanaka himself is an obstinate jerk who repeatedly voices the opinion that Ina should StayInTheKitchen, disparages the farmers and Maru despite the work they did to repulse the Wataro invasion, and ignores the warning of Genchu and Ricardo about the Wataro army arming themselves with guns.
